Paul Christopher Anderson shows how and why the the American Civil War (1861-65) remains the nation's defining moment, arguing that it was above all a struggle for power and political supremacy. Melding social, cultural and military history, the author explores iconic battles like Shiloh, Chickamauga, Antietam and Gettysburg as well as the bitterly contesting forces underlying them.

Index
Displaying a splendid gift for compressing facts without altering truths, Paul Anderson has produced a "short" history of the American Civil War that is long on quality and understanding. Lively, succinct, and perceptive, it is filled with sound, balanced judgments that make rare sense of a sprawling, complex, and crucial era in American history. A marvelous introduction to the war. * Daniel E. Sutherland, University of Arkansas *
